5. Kanji VadaKanji Vada is a popular snack in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. It is made by soaking vadas in a tangy and spicy fermented drink called kanji, which is prepared by fermenting beetroot, carrot or mustard leaves with water, salt, and Indian spices. The vadas are made from a mixture of lentil flour and spices that are deep-fried until crispy. The soaked vadas absorb the tangy flavor of the kanji, resulting in a delicious and refreshing taste.

Kanji Vada is typically served as a cooling and digestive snack during the summer months. It is also considered a popular street food and is sold at various food stalls and food carts throughout Jaipur. You can find them in walled city area like Chhoti Chaupar, Tripolia Bazar to name a few.

  1. Very interesting street food. I have heard about a Lassi before but never tried one, or to make it. Will have to investigate and see if I can find something similar to make at home.
